In 1973, a church located on Route 46, in Netcong, New Jersey faced an mountain-like problem. Having built a sanctuary on a recently acquired eight-acre property, half of which was occupied by mountain and woods. The local authority could not grant them permanent occupancy until enough parking space was provided. What would have served as parking space was predominantly woods and mountain. The cost of clearing the woods and removing the mountain was un affordable by the church at this time. One Sunday morning, Pastor Ray Crawford exhorted the congregation on Christ's word on faith that can move mountain (Mat. 17.20). He told the congregation: if you believe this scripture come and pray with me on Wednesday night that God will remove the mountain from the back of the church.
|Simple faith in God can even move a mountain|
The next morning, the phone rang from a telephone company planning to erect new building and needed to fill and reclaim a large swampy site. They had information that the mountain at the back of the church had correct proportions of sand, clay and rock which was required to reclaim their swampy site. Within a month from the date of the phone call, 40,000 square yards of fill had been evacuated, and the church was paid $5400. God not only honored the faith of his servant by removing the mountain, but also provided him with funds for paving the site for the parking space.
I pray for you: may every mountain in your life be bought over today. As you cast your burden on the Lord, may he level every mountain in your life, ministry and family, in Jesus name. May parking lots be provided in your life for the blessings that the Lord will be releasing into your life, in Jesus name. I stand on Ps. 138.8, and ask the Lord to perfect everything that concerns your life and family this day, in Jesus name.
Mountains are just prayers that have not yet been prayed for.
